Aquaman (2016) #51

Aug 24, 2019

Aquaman #51 is a quiet, inoffensive issue that ends with a bang that introduces the next strife and drama for the characters involved.

Daredevil (2019) #11

Sep 14, 2019

Daredevil #11 is melodramatic in the best ways. At times it comes off as overwrought and a little cheesy, but it feels intentional. The story that's being told here is supposed to be an over-the-top drama and the way all the different stories are intertwining creates a greater than the sum of its parts, situation.

Green Lantern (2018) #11

Sep 8, 2019

The Green Lantern #11 is a book that is trying to do a lot of things all at the same time and for the most part manages to do it effectively. It's also the first time we're seeing just what creators like Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp can do with Green Lantern, a property that has been in a bit of a creative rut for awhile.

Green Lantern (2018) Annual #1

Aug 1, 2019

There's just not enough here for anyone other than die-hard fans of The Green Lantern. It's not a bad book by any means, but there's no shaking the overbearing mediocreness of it all.

Ignited #3

Aug 10, 2019

Ignited #3 wears its politics on its sleeve just like the rest of the series. By page 3 you know exactly where it stands on the divisive subject of mass shootings and gun control. That isn't a bad thing, but conveying this stance in simple and cheap ways does its message a disservice and doesn't make for a fun read.

Knights Temporal #1

Aug 3, 2019

Knights Temporal #1 is a strong start for the series. This issue could be carried by the art along, but thankfully the story is fun as well. There's nothing too complicated about what's going on here and that's a good thing. This is the epitome of "Show don't tell".

Knights Temporal #2

Aug 31, 2019

Knights Temporal #2 is an issue that seems to be more concerned with establishing larger overarching stakes, rather than telling a more concise tale that pushes the characters forward. Thankfully, at this point, those larger stakes are interesting and show a lot of potential in becoming an intricate and exciting story.

Lois Lane (2019) #3

Sep 8, 2019

Lois Lane #3 still feels like a continuation to the love letter to journalism started in the first two issues of the series, but doesn't match the same tone as the story begins to shift to a more personal facet of the titular character.

Ms. Marvel (2015) #6

Aug 27, 2019

Ms. Marvel has never shied away from complex situations, but rarely something so personal. Art issues aside, this story has been laid out, so far, in a way that feels understandable but also unique to this title.

Ms. Marvel (2015) #7

Sep 21, 2019

The Magnificent Ms. Marvel #7 is an issue that continues the title's run of being pound for pound the best young readers comic book out there. It's unfortunately hampered by a lackluster threat that feels more like a distraction from a more interesting plotline than a compelling scenario itself.

Omni #1

Aug 19, 2019

Omni #1 is a good addition to the H1 imprint that introduces a new character that feels original.

Runaways (2017) #23

Aug 4, 2019

This issue nails the feeling that this team really is a family with all their own struggles but common goals. It is especially nice to see Victor getting the spotlight here and the maturity displayed in all the character interactions is refreshing.

Strayed #2

Sep 20, 2019

Strayed #2 is carried by the premise of the series as a whole. This issue is utilitarian in the sense that it only seems to exist as a way to bridge the opening issue to a more interesting story on the horizon. With that being said, the issue is also saddled with an uninteresting antagonist, but is buoyed by a fun, adorable, astral projecting cat.

The White Trees #1

Aug 16, 2019

A strong piece of storytelling that not only tells a tragic, personal story, but also lays the groundwork for a whole world. Solid art paired with gorgeous colors.

Van Helsing vs. Dracula's Daughter #1

Aug 14, 2019

The plot is paint by numbers, but a fun main character, good art, and just enough cheesiness makes this a fun read regardless.
